There are an estimated 20 million blind and
low-vision people in the United States, according to the American Foundation for the Blind. For helping them, a San Diego based startup
named Aira has developed a remote assistive technology. It connects the blind with a network of certified
agents via wearable smart glasses and an augmented reality dashboard. Whenever the blind person needs help he has
to just activate his Aira smart glass with his hand. On activating his Aira Smart Glass, a remote
agent will start helping him using the live data streams from cameras, GPS, and other
sensor systems from wearable platforms such as Google Glass and Pivothead. . The remote agent works with a mission control
style dashboard where she can see what the blind person is looking at and location, from
Google Maps. Then the agent can help him by talking to
him.
